How Music Makes You Smarter

Perhaps we are too engrossed in our daily routine to realise it, but almost everyone is influenced by music each and every day. Recent studies show that listening to music, or playing a musical instrument has a productive effect on the mind and body. Furthermore recent surveys show that the average person listens to at least 25 songs a day and one in two people play a musical instrument. 53% of students between the age group of 12 to 17 listen to music while studying, which is a good piece of information to keep in mind when you have nagging parents, telling you to “turn that music off”.

Some of the world’s mammoth corporations like Shell and IBM use music to train new employees, claiming improved learning, and the College Board reports that students studying music generally score higher SAT scores.
